I would highly recommend listening to this in a private area...because people are going to think you're nuts when you snort and giggle for five hours straight.

And just to be safe, hit pause before you take a big swig of diet soda. Trust me on this.

I've read everything Molly Harper, she's one of only two authors I watch release dates for. I don't know how she manages to keep the humor going non-stop, or to come up with situations like, well, I'm not going to spoil it for you, just read it.

The narrator is perfect. If I could give this book more stars, I would. Fantastic!

Great beginning....good middle....but fizzled out quite a bit by the end. I am glad I took a chance on this one just for the beginning as it was so darn funny I couldn't help laughing out loud. Added to that, the heroine was a lovable, fun misfit with a can-do attitude that I just couldn't help liking. The narrator was absolutely perfect for her...However, she was not perfect for the hero as she sounded like a child trying to do a whispery male voice. A little lame, a little icky.

The middle moved along without as much humor, but the story still kept my interest as I wanted to know that even with all the crazy bumps, the heroine's life turned out well for her. Unfortunately , as the end neared the humor was almost nil and the story really began to drag and I began to lose interest. So much so in fact, that I caught my mind wandering. Really wished it had kept the same momentum throughout.

I had all my reading buddies keep telling me how wonderful Molly Harper is. This is not really my favorite genre, but I said "what the heck" and bought this book.

Sorry to the fans ... I just didn't "get" it. I realize that it's a novella, but it read like an outline for a story -- didn't get to know the characters much at all, so I never did care what happened to them. I also found the "humor" somewhat sophomoric and dumbed-down. I can't see myself reading more of this author, just because she's popular. I didn't like Twilight either.

At least I tried it! =)

Take one control-freaky vampire, one catastrophe prone female and send them on a road trip and all sorts of hilarity ensues.

On the lighter side of the undead and with a pop-in appearance and a mention or two of characters from Harper's Dead Girls Don't series, Driving Mr Dead was a lot of fun. There was a nice touch of romance too, as Miranda - who acquires the completely fitting nickname of Jinx before the story is through - discovers that all her past screw-ups were all the training she needed for her dream job. I really liked the way that the stiff passenger Collin unbends and is delighted by the chaos Miranda brings to his long lonely boring life and I liked that Harper doesn't try to force a HEA into the short but leaves the reader with the promise of one - and I liked that Miranda's butt-dialing ex gets his just dessert too.

So this quick cute read end up being lots of fun and has me looking forward to Harper's soon to be released Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighbors (Jane Jameson, Book 4) - there's a sneak preview of that story included here, but I've stopped reading these (On the whole I prefer to wait for the real deal.)

Cute, light and fun are some of the words that I would use to describe Driving Mr. Dead. Molly Harper's writing is cheery and Amanda Ronconi's narration is colourful. I finished this audiobook in record time; mainly because it's only 5 hours long but also thanks to the high entertainment value. This light-hearted book is guaranteed to put a smile on your face! Miranda is quirky and silly, Collin is peculiar yet sexy, and their road trip together is disastrous. If you haven't given Molly Harper a try yet, Driving Mr. Dead is a good place to start!

I like the main concept behind this book: a vampire concierge service. Simple but with oh so many promising possibilities! Anyone who's ever been on a road trip knows that they usually don't go quite as planned, throw a vamp into the mix and you're just asking for trouble! Harper does a fab job of writing a great book that revolves around such a simple story line. I think that's part of the appeal of this novel; you don't have to think. All you have to do is sit back, listen and enjoy. Don't get me wrong, I still love all of the complicated universes found in the Paranormal genre but it's nice to dumb things down every once in a while and to just enjoy the experience. This book is just plain fun!

Miranda reminds me a lot of my young adult days. She's sort of all over the place, doesn't really know what she wants to do with her life and is rather ditzy. She also has a knack for turning a dull, cross-country drive into an African safari. Harper's imagination really shines through in the form of Miranda's ridiculous antics. Many of them seem farfetched, but really, under the right circumstances anything is possible! Or maybe it's just me. I am a Murphy on my mom's side after all so perhaps I'm more prone to weird things happening.

Serial rolling-stone, Miranda Puckett, is on the first day of her new job for Beeline - driving vampire's cross-country as their personal chauffer. And her first client has perfect timing - providing Miranda with some much needed Washington-to-Kentucky driving/thinking time to sort out her ever-destructive life and butt-dialling ex-fiancé.

It's just a shame that Miranda's maiden voyage is with Collin Sutherland. A pretentious, reclusive, up-tight vamp with sixteen-pages of instructions for his chauffer and a silver suitcase that he refuses to talk about.

This is going to be one long road-trip to Half-Moon Hollow . . . and along the way there will be car-boobs, muggings, MC Hammer and Hawaiian shirts. Oh, joy.

`Driving Mr. Dead' is the 160-page novella set in Molly Harper's `Jane Jameson' universe.

What is the appropriate reaction when one of your favourite, funny authors writes a special little novella treat set in her established-series universe? Why, fan-girl squealing - of course! And let me assure you, Molly Harper's `Driving Mr. Dead' is entirely deserving of your peals of squeals!

Harper introduces us to Miranda Puckett - employee to daytime vampire concierge, Iris Scanlon, who readers met in `Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighbours', and who has her own spin-off book coming out this month called `The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires'. Miranda is a wayward soul with itchy feet and an ever-changing resume. She has been a cruise ship dogsbody and magician's assistant but her favourite job of all was as professional photographer. In recent years she has tried squeezing herself into a life that pleases her parents - as paralegal and fiancée to the white-picket-fence good boy, Jason.
